Carolina Dentures And Dentistry
Carolina Dentures, Dunnellon Fl. IE: Dr. Gonzalez. When I decided to finally get dentures Dr. Gonzalez at Carolina Dentures was recommended by a few friends of mine. In early November 2016 I visited their Dunnellon Fl office to have an assessment completed, the office was warm and inviting and all of the people working there were very caring and hospitable, after X Rays were taken Dr. Gonzalez sat down with me and discussed my options, he was extremely knowledgeable about his profession and very understanding as to the psychological ramifications of one losing all their teeth. I have experienced a number of appointments in which I have had my bottom teeth removed and then my top teeth as well, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised as to the gentle nature, expertise and professionalism exhibited by Dr. Gonzalez and his assistant, there was very little pain or discomfort associated with my extractions and the post-operative healing of my gums is progressing extremely well, while at home healing I have received multiple calls from Dr. Gonzalez inquiring as to my condition and level of pain and provided me with a phone number where I could contact them if I needed their assistance, it's extremely reassuring to have a health care professional who is an expert at what they do and cares enough to call you to ask how you are doing, Dr. Gonzalez is a real credit to his profession and I feel extremely comfortable recommending Dr. Gonzalez at Carolina Dentures to anyone.

Dunnellon Dentistry
An awful office. Charged me $177 to reglue a veneer that fell back out of my head before the dentist left the exam room. The dental assistant glued it again- but that lasted only a couple of weeks. I was quoted another $200 to glue in this bit of tooth that they screwed up the first time. Saw the dentist for about 22 seconds. I'm a medical professional. Avoid this office. Seek dental care anywhere but with this staff.
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
